2nd Time Lucky
I had a d&c in Feb this year, after a scan revealed the heartbeat had stopped at 7 weeks, by this time i was just over 11 weeks. I had experienced extremely bad pains across my lower stomache for 3 days. I went back and forth to the doctors but since i didnt bleed at all they just kept saying wait and see. So i actually spent 4 weeks thinking all was fine when it wasnt. I just want everyone to know that if you have any sort of pains to get them checked out & dont take no for an anwer.
Good news is i am now 10 weeks & 1 days pregnant again, all appears to be going well so far, fingers crossed. I cant stop thinking about it though i takes up most of my day. I was feeling really tired & sicky though hav'nt been sick at all just abit of retching when i brush my teeth. Now im 1o weeks i suddenly feel much better, but thats made me worry even more. I go for my first scan on the 3rd Oct so until then i'll just have to worry.
I do feel better just talking about it anyway.
Good Luck to all you out there trying to get or are pregnant. I'll keep my fingers crossed for eveyone.
Dear Losing Hope-TriciaI had a friend tell me to take wild yam root to prevent miscarriage. I have not ever had one, but I am only 4 weeks prego and I am freaking about possilb problems (just like everyone else), so she told me to try the wild yam.
It keeps the uterus nice and soft so the baby can't get "bounced out". It's worth a try, and natural so it can't hurt you...
Good luck, I'll think of you
My first pregnancy!!!My husband and I were trying for eight months, when I got spotting and was like oh well, another month. Then it stopped within a few hours and I thought nothing of it. I took the test two days later and it was positive within a MINUTE!!! We are so excited.
I am 7 1/2 weeks along and my breasts have been killing since 4 weeks and the morning sickness kicked in at week 5 1/2...ugh....24/7 nausea, but no vomiting. I go next week for my 8 week checkup. Already went at 5 weeks for the history part and blood tests.
Does anybody know why some docotrs give early ultrasounds and others wait until 20 weeks? Just wondering because we want to show the only living soon to be great garnd mother the ultrasound picture when we visit her next month!!
Congrats to everybody!!!!

Happier than ever...but scaredI am a newly wed girl, just 26. These recent two years I have wanted so much a child, but I had to get married, in order to have one. Yep...I am pregnant. I was lucky to get pregnant immediately (although at first I was sceptical I could get pregnant).
Today I saw the doctor and he said I am 7 weeks 2 days. It was another world seeing my tiny, winy creature on the screen. I want this child more than anything else in this world. He (I wish he is a boy) is and will be my only hope in this dark and sensless world. I just am so scared, because the first signs of my pregnancy were with blood stains. This might have been caused by stress (which in my situation is in galore). However, I don't feel alone. My husband is helping me with this, although sometimes he makes my life complicated. However, I hope I get through with these critical weeks.
I don't care about the hard symptoms of this first trimester, as long as my angel is OK and is with me. Oh, Lord! I wanted so much to share my feelings with you girls. I am scared of any possible miscarriage caused by stress or by the fact that I am a little underweight. Whoever trusts in God, let him/her pray for me and for my little angel. He is my happiness and the reason to live. He is my one and only someone. Only a mother in love with her children will understand me.
I wish to all those pregnant women: may God bless you and your kids. And do not forget - we are the luckiest and most blessed persons in the world.
Can anyone reassure me that my "piece of heaven" will be alright?
Arti:God i feel your pain, every time i so much as sneeze i worry that something might have just happened to the baby. I worry constantly as well. I had 3 miscarriages in 18 months (very rare apparently) so please believe me when i say i know what your going through. My next scan isn't for 3 weeks, thats AFTER the 12 week mark. So i have ages to worry. I guess im just lucky to have such a supportive husband. He just keeps reassuring me. I to have taken time off from work to just take no chances (under my GP's recommendation). I just don't know what else to tell you. Hang in there. Im sure you'll be fine.
